Israel – Premier Tech had a successful Tour de Luxembourg, taking a stage win, courtesy of Corbin Strong on stage one, and a podium finish on stage 3 from an attacking move by Dylan Teuns.

With a victory coming on stage one, a good result in the rest of the week was a bonus for the team. IPT rode excellently on the first stage, riding all day to protect Corbin Strong and getting him in the perfect position so that he could execute the perfect sprint, and come away victorious.

“I was really happy with the stage win,” Strong explains. “We came here with a really strong team, and we rode exceptionally on stage one. I’ve been in good shape all season, so it’s a really nice feeling to get the win. It was a really nice week for the team, we rode well together. We didn’t finish the week quite how we wanted, but we can be happy with how we are going, and look forward to our next races.”

Also performing well was Dylan Teuns, who came into the race targeting a good finish on the overall classification, and a good performance in the hillier stages. Finishing 13th overall, he more than proved that he was one of the strongest in the race, climbing to third place on the third stage.

“It was a good week. Finishing third on the queen stage was good, and on the numbers and power side, I can be satisfied with my performances. I wanted to do better in the final stage, and maybe finish better overall, but I know I have good legs, so I’m motivated for my next races.”

Sports Director, Oscar Guerrero was pleased with the team’s performance, as they showed good morale, and worked well together as a team.

“In general, the week went well, we won the first stage and Dylan did well on stage 3. I wanted the team to finish better today, but we still worked very well for 95% of the stage, it was only in the last few kilometers we lost a little bit of concentration. We had a clear plan all week, and we coped very well, and rode as a team, so I am happy with this.”
